TVXC Race 2 - TVT - Sunday 21st October - Eversley/Bramshill Common

After a fallow year TVT are delighted to confirm the return of our XC league fixture on Sunday 21st October, 11:00 race start

The race venue and parking is at St Neots School, St Neots Road, Eversley nr Hook, RG27 0PN (off the A327 in Eversley). Parking is in the school. Please lift share wherever possible and take guidance from the car park marshals to ensure we can maximise the car parking space.

We will once again be running the course on Bramshill Common Wood courtesy of the Forestry Commission. The race start is a 10-15 minute walk through the school grounds, across Bramshill Road (take care when crossing) and passed the barrier entry in to the woods. Marshals and signage will direct you to the start point which is the best place for teams to set up camp on the field there. As always we ask that all runners show courtesy to all other users of the common as without the Forestry Commission approval and the support of the local communities we would not be able to run this event. The course is a single lap, approximately 9km with a mixed terrain of forestry paths and trails. Some of the trails are compact and therefore spikes are not recommended.

Race packs can be collected at the race start from the TVT marshals at the start/finish line. Please return your score sheets, finish discs and money to the marshals at the finish line or to the TVT reps in the refreshment area. Refreshments will be served back at the school in the dining hall (adjoining the cricket pitch). Remember to bring your own reusable cups for water and hot drinks. No dirty shoes in the dining hall please. Portaloos will be available in the school grounds.

Most importunately enjoy the race, look after the venue please as we want come back and good luck to all running on the day.

TVXC - Reduction of Single-Use Plastic

Hi Team

As we head towards the TVXC season, we as a league are working to support the reduction in disposal of single-use plastic, and plastic lined paper cups (that are highly un-recyclable)

We ask you please for the TVXC events this year that you bring a reusable cup/mug for water, tea and coffee, to avoid the ~1000 cups that are currently thrown away each event.

Host clubs will not provide single-use cups at the events

Your individual clubs will be communicating this also - But more communication is always better than less!

Metros TVXC Fixture
Sunday 7th October 2018
Start time: 11:00 a.m.

Metros fixture will be at Hillingdon House Farm Fields again this year, our base will be in Hillingdon Athletics Stadium (post code UB8 1ES) where there are changing rooms, toilet facilities and refreshments. There is some parking there which is pay and display, there is also parking in the surrounding roads.

The nearest exit from the A40 is Swakleys roundabout, either the first exit and then first right down Warren Road, and there is a footpath over the A40 to Hillingdon House Farm Fields. The other option is the third exit off Swakleys roundabout (B483) there is a turn off to the left to the Stadium or going down Honeycroft Hill and parking around in the surrounding road, North Way is the way to the start, but there is no where to park along that road, where is also a way into the field from Sweetcroft Lane. There are also car parks in Uxbridge if you do not mind about a 20 minute walk.

This is a new two lap course.

The course is suitable for spikes.
Please remove muddy footwear before entering the Stadium.
